4.0 out of 5 stars Allie's world expands, 4 Aug 2012

This review is from: Magic in the Shadows (An Allie Beckstrom Novel) (Kindle Edition)
**spoiler alert** This is the third book in the Allie Beckstrom series and you'll really benefit from reading its predecessors first.

Allie's world expands quite drastically in this book. She encounters more magic users, learns more about the mysterious Authority, struggles to deal with her not-quite-dead dad taking up residence in her head, battles nightmare creatures and fights for her life a few times. In between times, she takes charge of the Hounds, goes on a date, strikes up a relationship with the step-mother and gets a new pet. It's all go, go, go in Allie's life.

I do like Allie on the whole, but sometimes I find her irritatingly stupid. She's aware that she doesn't have the greatest knowledge of magic, but she repeatedly ignores advice and even orders from more experienced magic users. Sometimes she seems to do it out of sheer bloodymindedness and the need not to do what her dad tells her. Seriously, it seems like she'd rather die sometimes than take a little advice. She doesn't seem to grow at all as a character, nor does she learn from her mistakes. Instead, she blunders on, putting herself and those around her in more and more danger. Then there are the times when she performs advanced magic without previously knowing the spell. I assume that sometimes she's drawing on her dad's knowledge, but it seems a little bit too convenient and slightly lazy story telling to me.

I'm still enjoying this series though, so it's on to book 4!

Enjoyable read, enjoyable enough to purchase the whole series and hope that Allie Beckstrom returns in the future, without her Dad!
